(A) which may limit their potential to relieve
"which" is modifying patients. So wrong meaning.

(B) which may limit their potential for relieving
"which" is modifying patients. So wrong meaning.

(C) which may limit such analgesics’ potential to relieve
"which" is modifying patients. So wrong meaning.

(D) an effect that may limit their potential to relieve
"their" has no clear referrant.

(E) an effect that may limit the potential of such analgesics for relieving
Wordy, awkward, however, nothing seems to be gramatically wrong.

So IMO E.

shud be E

we are talking about an effect here , clearly stated in E.

C sounds good but "which" is kinda ambiguous ; there are two clauses in the previous section of sentence.

Kaplan, OG, MGMAT....like the company who made it up. I know with Arco and Princeton a lot of times the questions aren't accurate.

A, B and C are wrong for incorrect usage of "which".

D still has the ambiguity with "their".

E is longer but most clear.

Hi x2suresh,

D is wrong. What does "they" refer to? patients? illogical

Best answer is D .

All are other choices have a major error .

E is unidiomatic

A,B and C :- which

D might have a pronoun error but their might also refer to analgesics . Potential to is correct

Hence D should be the best answer. GMAT does throw in such questions where you have to pick the best answer.
